Information Technology (A.A.S.)

Study information technology at JCC

Graduates earning the A.A.S. in information technology degree will have both an in-depth understanding of computing technology fundamentals and the skills necessary for implementation in selected environments. Information technology examines the hardware side of technology and inspects how data is transmitted, exchanged, stored, or displayed. Students complete several core courses and then select from a number of liberal arts and career electives. The wide range of electives provides flexibility for students as they select courses that further their technology-related career goals.

Graduates are able to identify technology needs and specify appropriate systems. They have the skills to perform installation, configuration, maintenance, troubleshooting, and documentation services. Depending on their choice of electives, students are directly employable in the areas of computer support, application support, help desk support, and network and database support.
